Can a Loose Dental Bridge Be Recemented?

Posted on 1/15/2024 by Weo Admin
Woman with glasses smiling after dental bridge appointment at Elite Dental of Natick in Natick, MAWhen you lose several teeth simultaneously, we can suggest you get dental bridges. Dental bridges are used to permanently fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. Dental bridges are meant to last for years and do not require constant attention.

Why Dental Bridges Become Loose

There are several reasons why your dental bridges become loose, even though they are designed to last for decades. First, your dental bridges can become loose due to tooth decay that occurs under the bridge. When that happens, there will be significant damage around the bridge that will warrant its removal.

Alternatively, teeth alignment can affect the position of the dental bridge in the mouth, fitting it loosely in its space. If the teeth surrounding the bridge also get damaged, your dental bridge can become loose.

Finally, chewing hard foods can damage the crown or cause chipping that could damage the bridge. If you find out that your dental bridge is loose, visit us so we can check it and advise you on what to do.

Can a Loose Dental Bridge Be Recemented?

Our dentist can remove and re-cement your loose dental bridges. However, removing some dental bridges where the dental cement has made a strong bond might be more complicated. The strong bond can require the use of a drill to remove the dental bridge, but that would also mean that re-cementing it will not be possible.

In short, a loose dental bridge can be removed and re-cemented depending on the state of the bridge when it comes off from your gums. The removal and re-cementing of the dental bridge will depend on the integrity of the bridge and the underlying reasons that caused it to come loose in the first place.

Even though bridges are meant to stay as permanently as possible, several aspects can affect their stability. If you experience any of the issues mentioned, visit us to assess the problem and advise you on the appropriate action.
